Journalist confirms Milan want Chelsea forward – ‘Expected that the transfer will be official soon’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are pushing strongly to sign Olivier Giroud on a free transfer and the deal could even be completed soon, a report claims.

Milan are in the market for a new striker to bolster the forward department after Mario Mandzukic’s exit was confirmed yesterday. The Croatian veteran was supposed to arrive and give Milan some much needed centre-forward depth given Ibrahimovic’s injury struggles, but Mandzukic also encountered problems and in the end his time at Milan never took off.

According to the latest from journalist Ekrem Konur on Twitter, Milan have ‘concluded’ talks with Giroud – a player that sporting director Frederic Massara in particular is keen on adding to the squad. Not only that, but he adds how ‘it is expected that the transfer will be official soon’.

After the signing of Mike Maignan to replace the want-away Gianluigi Donnarumma, it appears Milan are moving quickly and efficiently in the market.

    We should also look into Goran Pandev, Rodrigo Palacio, Pepe, maybe Kazuyoshi Miura. We can set up a geriatric ward right next to Casa Milan.

    So you want to replace one old man who cannot score with another old man who cannot score. Stop this bs, this is f****** dumb ffs!

    In a long term it’s smart! It probably means we will invest in the most important position, namely the amf since maldini and co. knows he is just not mentally at the level that this club needs. He is timid and sluggish! So after Ibra finishes his career we can spend on the world class talent like Vlahović who should spend at least another season at Viola

    It seems to me that we’re collecting French players lol

    Milan is the youngest team in Italy and one of the youngest in Europe. Another experienced player won’t hurt and it will not turn Milan into an old team. Chill.
